What to do around the youth hostel in Poitiers? >

Poitier is a city full of history in the heart of Poitou, and is one of the stages of the Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage route. It is also surrounded by natural sites. The city will seduce all visitors looking for a destination off the beaten track by offering a range of activities that will delight everyone.

  • Le Futuroscope : Only 15 minutes from the hostel, take a leap into the future in this park with innovative architecture.
  • The Marais Poitevin : Also known as the "Venise Verte", this regional nature park is a must-see. On foot or by bike, the greenery of this unique place will enchant you. For an unforgettable moment, rent a boat or a kayak for a trip along the water. To reach the Poitevin marshland in a more sustainable way, opt for the train, and reach Niort in 1 hour. 
  • The historic center of Poitiers : The old city is full of medieval treasures. Start with the most impressive monument: - the church Notre-Dame-la-Grande. Built in the 12th century, the details of its sculptures are remarkably well preserved. - The baptistery of St. John is one of the oldest Christian buildings in Europe. In it are hidden Romanesque paintings and Merovingian sarcophagi. - Finally, let's go to the palace of the Counts of Poitou. This former place of power captivates visitors with its stained glass windows and towers, all particularly well preserved. Today, the palace hosts several cultural events. 

The city of Poitiers is a true medieval jewel, which is not yet a victim of mass tourism. The region is well worth a visit, as it is surrounded by beautiful natural areas. It is perfect for green tourism as it is crossed by numerous hiking (especially towards Santiago de Compostela) and cycling routes.
